4 Arrested After Colorado Springs Police Attacked

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Four people have been arrested after Colorado Springs police officers were attacked while investigating a disturbance Saturday night.

Police were called about a woman who was not breathing. Police say a man was standing over an apparently unconscious female with his fingers in her mouth when they arrived.

When officers asked the man to back away from the woman, police say he threatened to kill the officers. Police say as they were detaining the man, the woman struck one of the officers in the ribs with a large object.

Police say the disturbance escalated when neighbors began threatening officers. Police say one person involved in the disturbance suffered minor injuries.
